R. W. Lawrence, son of Richard and Ruth Lawrence, was born Feb. 1, 1829 in Ontario, Canada, and came into boyhood to the United States. On May 15, 1860, he was united in marriage to Lucy Caffee, who died twenty years ago. Two sons were born to them, both of whom were present at their father's funeral. Mr. Lawrence first joined the church of the United Brethren but about thirty years ago he united with the Methodist church and remained a member until his death. He was a deeply religious man and a constant reader of the Bible, and after health became feeble and sight dim so that he could not read, he could recite whole passages from memory. He departed this life April 7, 1914, aged 85 years, two months and six days. The funeral service was conducted on Easter Sunday by the Methodist minister in the presence of the family and a considerable number of neighbors and friends who covered the coffin with flowers and manifested much friendly sympathy.
